The Deputy Governor of Taraba state Alhaji Haruna Manu has announced that the state government has imposed a curfew on the state capital Jalingo following the breaking in and looting of items in government warehouse on Saturday which was meant to be distributed to the members of the public.
This he stated ‘Some hoodlums and vandals forced their way into government warehouses and looted items meant for distribution as palliatives. “The government has therefore imposed a curfew on Jalingo from 11 p.m. on Saturday to 8 a.m. on Monday.’
He added that the intention was to forestall further destructions by hoodlums and to restore peace in the capital and he went further to direct the security personnel to ensure strict compliance to prevent further escalation of the ongoing vandalism.
He advised the youths to channel their energy to positivity and something meaningful for the promotion of societal growth rather than going into the destruction of goods and properties.
